This playful cottage in Dutchess County is a study in custom stonework. Brick and stone patterns undulate with the sweeping curve of the roof, creating a unique exterior design that looks it might be right at home with the Hobbits.
Still more custom work on the inside of this 2345 square foot home, including the living room fireplace, exposed beam ceilings, and stained glass. The dining room is practically a solarium with two walls of floor-to-ceiling windows and double doors leading to a deck. Includes three bedrooms and three full baths, as well as an 8.76 acre piece of land located 10 minutes east of Rhinebeck village. Also in the neighborhood: The Omega Institute, Clinton Vineyards (it’s right in the midst of Dutchess County wine country), Rhinecliff hamlet and the Amtrak station, Dutchess County Fairgrounds (not just for the county fair; there are lots of events that take place here throughout the year), and Red Hook village.
You’re going to want to show off this house, so go ahead and invite your friends over. There’s a second story apartment in the detached garage with its own kitchen, bath, and laundry where they can stay while they enjoy their visit to this little slice of fairytale heaven.
